On 7-9 June 2017, ISBIS held a conference at the IBM Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York, US. There were 136 attendees, mostly from the information technology industries, and ISBIS feels it was a great success. For a long time we have wanted to attract younger colleagues, more diverse members, and data scientists whose skills are driving modern business and industry. This time it worked, and we hope to continue the trend next year at our conference in Athens, Greece, on 4-6 July 2018.

ISI is pleased to note the decision of the new Canadian government to reinstate the mandatory long form for the 2016 Canadian Census, thereby restoring data quality for small population data.  This decision follows on from the controversial decision in 2010 to make the form voluntary. ISI Declaration on Professional Ethics and the UN Fundamental Principles both stress the need for professional judgements on issues of methodology.
